How SmartFresh™ brings sustainability and energy savings
SmartFresh™ technology not only protects your produce, but also helps reduce energy use for the good of people and the world.
A range of studies has quantified the positive energy savings customers get when using SmartFresh technology—proving that the use of SmartFresh together with controlled atmosphere storage can contribute significantly to improved energy efficiency and lower carbon footprint without compromising quality.
Due to the lower metabolism and respiration rate of SmartFresh fruits, fewer hours are needed for refrigeration, defrosting, ventilation, O2 addition and CO2 scrubbing. When SmartFresh is combined with changes in the storage regimes (for example, night cooling or increase of storage temperature), the energy efficiency is even more noticeable: carbon footprint reductions and cost savings are measurably higher.
